PSAT 8 - For 8th Graders

On Wednesday, October 14, Heritage Middle School 8th Graders will administer the PSAT/NMSQT®, a test that showcases the classroom skills and knowledge that are essential for college and career readiness and success.


We encourage your child to take advantage of the many benefits the PSAT/NMSQT offers:


  • Connects students to colleges and universities across the country, and to scholarship organizations.
  • Prepares students for the new SAT® and college and fuels practice recommendations on Khan Academy®.
  • The College Board has teamed with Khan Academy® to provide personalized Official SAT Practice — totally free. In the future, students will be able to link their PSAT/NMSQT scores to Khan Academy for practice recommendations that will hone their skills for the SAT, college, and career.
  • Matches students with AP® courses that make the most of their academic strengths. AP classes can provide an edge in the admission process, and an opportunity to earn college credit.
